Ralph Thorne Racing proudly presents 'The Warrior,' a new 1/24 GTP body that we are manufacturing in-house.  
 
This body is an original copyrighted design that was CAD-designed with input from top racers around the country. Its many features compliment modern-day flexi cars with a unique blend of improved handling and increased straightline speed. These are quality pulls with even side thickness. The new body also features a cut line to assist in body trimming.
 
They are available in .005" and .007" thick Lexan. Each body comes with a window mask and a pair of front wheel stickers.
 
Retail price is $6.95 each plus shipping, if ordered direct HERE. Raceway pricing is available and ERI already has these in stock.
 
If you purchase five or more bodies direct at full retail, an extra body will be included with your order as a thank-you!
 
Please note the bodies will only come in retail packaging when purchased by a raceway or if specifically requested on direct orders.
 
ERI purchased a majority of my initial .007" inventory so I only have a few of the .007" remaining at the moment. I will have more Lexan in stock next week to fill any back orders.

Ralph,

 

Are you submitting this body to OCC for consideration?

Personally I have only tested it. But it has won races.

This is our original rendering from which a 3D model was made to produce the tooling that we use to make our bodies.

Ralph,

 

It looks awesome. With 3D printout I see the presumed cut line is on the black portion of the block and the purple details the body work.

 

Thank you.

How does it compare with the O/S 069?
